The city-state of Arlyn has erected a magical barrier in order to defend the city from outside threats, including the infamous Havocstorms. While it originally kept Arlyn surrounded by an expansive bubble, it has since been extended and strained. The city now butts up against it in several locations, and it is no longer round by any means. It has begun to develop weak points, where the effects of Havocstorms are more likely to seep through. Many of the mages and artificers assigned to maintain it are concerned that it will soon fail completely.
